THE SELECT GUEST
MEET | BENITA LITT
+ KRISTA LISSNER
Featured 12.26-1.1 | I wanted to end 2016 on a high note, and couldn't think of a better way to do it than to highlight Benita Litt + Krista Lissner, the creators of Legend of Lido. The two grew up on opposite sides of the country but met and became fast friends, and their line of bags, pouches and dopp kits, all made from one-of-a-kind original prints, are a testament to their their shared love of travel, design and philanthropy. They each have impressive pasts: Benita was an entertainment lawyer who also happens to know the lyrics to every hip hop song from the 90s, and Krista was a publishing and sales exec who can guess the amount of any item in a jar to the number, but it's their decision to donate a portion of the proceeds of each bag sold to feed hungry families in the community of the artist that makes what they do truly extraordinary. Welcome to Benita + Krista's week.
Fresh flowers are a wonderful way to compliment your home. We love using our friends at The Unlikely Florist, a van converted into a mobile flower stand featuring fresh wildflowers in rustic wine bottle vases which pops up all around Venice and makes home deliveries.Read More
Legend of Lido was inspired by the act and art of travel, so naturally we could go on and on about some of our favorite spots. But if we only had to name a few, Mexico City, Cartagena, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming would be our selects.Read More
